Vivian spent the next four years performing musical theatre, one play after the other. At 10 years old, her curiosity in film and television led her to Catapult Acting Studios in Atlanta, GA. Vivian quickly fell in love with the industry and worked tirelessly with her mentor and coach, Erik Lingvall. Vivian plays Mallory Pike in the Netflix series The Babysitters Club, which released its first season in July. She continues to work as a VO for a children’s animated series to be released at a later date.
